Writing Updates

This has been a pretty productive week. Last week, I felt very in control of things. I am almost done with the first 4th of Pawn of Isis. And by almost done, I mean that it’s not in the bag, but this is solid stuff that will be kept and revised and polished.

I had some terrific editorial suggestions about Cookies this week from the editors of Mosaics 2, which resulted in a really deep revision of the story, so I expect I’ll be seeing another edit on that, but it’s a much better story now. Sometimes editing can seem like a chore. This time it opened doors and windows in my brain.

I have an idea for a new short story called The Devil’s Wingman, which I will get to as soon as I finish this first 4th of Pawn.

And finally, I have an idea for a quirky SF novel. Yes, you heard it hear. I am hot to do some research on it, but I would still like to revise the troll YA. I guess the answer is to write faster.

It’s a good time to be me. I’m sure in a few months I’ll be back to my usual mopy self.
